A Twitter poll asked anime fans in Japan what the best anime songs of all time are and below you can see the TOP 20 chosen.

The impact of an anime’s opening or ending song is undeniable. These pieces of music not only set the tone and atmosphere of the series, but they can also evoke specific emotions and contribute significantly to the narrative and character development. An iconic opening or ending can remain etched in the viewer’s memory and become inseparably associated with the anime in question.

Why do the opening and closing sequences last 90 seconds and have a characteristic structure? This duration was designed to make the most of the allotted time without interfering with the episode’s plot. Furthermore, the typical opening or ending structure, which includes a sequence of images accompanied by music, allows the viewer to further immerse themselves in the world of the anime and connect with the characters and story before and after each episode.
